Now that fall is here and the weather is about to change, sweaters, scarves, coats, and tights will become new wardrobe staples. We love the colors of fall-the oranges, browns, tans, reds…they are all gorgeous on the trees. All too often when fall rolls around women tend to opt for what they feel is the obligatory fall color palate.
Well ladies, News Flash! The days of orange and brown fall wardrobes are over! Shake your fall looks up with these bold trends that will be sure to keep you warm while you wait for Spring to roll around!
Walk on the Wild Side
Animal prints have been around for decades in fashion, dating back to the Bohemian Movement of the 1960′s. They went from offbeat, to upscale, to tacky, and if worn correctly, they can be chic and fabulous. Pair ONE bold animal print item with a brightly colored garment. A bright sweater with a leopard skirt. A lace trimmed cami with a belt animal print cardigan and jeans. Look for python shoes or bracelets. Find a thin leopard belt to cinch your otherwise demure office looks. As great as these items can look, BE CAUTIOUS! When purchasing animal print items, be sure to look for items that will look expensive. Leopard can easily look cheap and ruin an entire outfit. If you are going to rock an animal print, class it up with simple accessories and classic cuts. A classic pencil skirt in a bold print is sure to turn heads.
The hot colors of fall 2011 are Mustard Yellow, Jade Green, and Cobalt Blue. Warm, rich, jewel tones take the fall pieces and cuts you love to the next level. A blue jack or a yellow fall skirt, (of course, paired with FABULOUS tights) can help you from being bored with all of the browns and reds you are surrounded with this fall. Add some dark, royal purple and you are sure to stand out! Jade green is flattering to most skin and hair tones. It is an easy color to wear and compliments to many other colors. Yellow, purple, and orange all look great with jade. Don’t be afraid of colors! This leads perfectly into the next HOT trend of the fall:
Bold, bright, bottoms
Bright pants are all the rage in 2011. Red pants. Blue pants. Yellow Pants. You name it. It’s out there. Whether you choose to wear jewel tones or a warmer shade, be sure to snag at least one pair of bright, bold pants to pair with your traditional, plain tops and jackets. Finish the look with a great bag and booties and you will take fall by storm!
